|Let's Make A Story Together.|
Rules in list.
|1||Story of the Year|
Story of the Year
I will start off the story with either a paragraph or sentence(s) about whatever comes to mind. The next person will respond with a continuation of the story (you do not have to be linear with your continuation. Whatever comes to mind to change the character's actions or the environment around him/her or if you want to keep it simple). The person after that will then proceed with continuing the story as follows. If you have any difficulties regarding the rules of this idea, don't hesitate to ask, and I will gladly give you some direction.
Do not END the story. I want us to gradually build on this whether or not it ever has an ending.
|3||So the Story Goes|
As We March With Victims
Be as creative and imaginative as you like but also try to make sense with your story continuations. I want our story to be as cohesive as possible while also being unpredictable and entertaining.
|4||A Lifelike Story|
Flowers for Wednesday
There is no end date/time unlike the "battle lists" I've made previously; whenever someone feels like bumping this thread with a continuation of the story, the story will go on.
|5||Our Life Story|
We've Got Something To Say
Most importantly, let's have fun! This the story that our community will be writing together so we build on our contributions to the story.
|Rules in the list. I'll add the first installment of the story so we have a starting point to build on. I'll keep it simple.|
Once upon a time, there was a man named Rickey, a 41 year old man who was a successful bar owner and has been working for Target for the past 6 years where he met his wife Lisa with whom he married shortly after starting. They recently became proud home owners where they live with their black cat and German Sheppard. Despite this, recently structural changes regarding the corporation they work for threaten their future employment. His wife Lisa was recently displaced from her permanent position as a Beauty Specialist, selling cosmetics to guests, and is struggling to acquire enough hours to keep her health insurance. Rickey is also facing uncertainty regarding his position and hours, and with necessary medications costing thousands of dollars per month without health insurance, they have to come together and face the uncertainties that lie ahead or buried in financial debt.
|Everything seemed to go wrong, but one day Rickey heard Deathspell Omega's latest album and everything changed|
|"What's with all the damn racket in here?" |
Rickey looked up as Lisa stumbled into the room. She was clutching a wine bottle in one hand and her face was flushed. She winced, as though pained by the pounding metal music that flowed from Rickey's surround sound stereo system.
|Rickey turned the music off and brought Lisa to the couch aware of her intoxicated state. He went to the fridge to get another beer and sat on the couch with Lisa, having her rest her head on his lap. He turned on Netflix and continued watching one of their favorite programs together: The Walking Dead.|
|"WARNING WARNING! This is not a test! " flashed across the screen, interrupting a long melodramatic conversion between Maggie, and the new transsexual Asian, Glenda, who shares strikingly similar features as her late husband Glenn, except his/her skull is still intact. |
"Da fuck" Ricky whispered to himself, as the warnings continued flashing across the screen.
|It was also the night that the skeletons came to life. The bones are the skeleton's money. In our world bones equal dollars. That's why they're coming out tonight. To get their bones from you. The skeletons'll pull your hair up, but not out. All they want is another chance at life. They've never seen so much food as this. Underground doesn't have as much food as this. And the worms are their money. The bones are their dollars.|
|Later, Rickey would sit in his tank and chuckle. |
Well, of course skeletons come with the apocalypse. It's only explicitly specified in the bible. It portrayed them as intimidating and frightening - not exactly so in reality. A tree is more dangerous than a skeleton, because it could fall over and cause some damage. When a skeleton falls over there is just a slight clacking sound.
But it does get up again.
